Hectic Times Ahead

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Let's face it, the Holidays can get pretty hectic and the last thing you need is some epic snowstorm to get in your way. Well..good news, you have a nice stretch of dry weather that will last into the start of the weekend. High pressure is moving into New England right now and will camp out for a few days. That means mainly sunny skies (there will be a few high, thin clouds out there today) and seasonal temps. Also with high pressure so close, little to no wind for the next couple of afternoons--that is HUGE this time of year when outside for any length of time.

While all this is going on, changes elsewhere are brewing....(insert dramatic music here)

The atmosphere will undergo changes that will greatly increase the chances of winter storms along the east coast. The first such chance will be on Sunday. As of now, it does not look like a big storm but it does look like a cold storm---so some patchy light snow/flurries appears likely on Sunday (all day) that will linger into the evening hours (including the Patriots game). This storm does have the potential to become a major storm with snow,sleet, freezing rain & rain. Too soon for rain/snow lines or how much in my town but use the next few days to find the shovels, test the snow-blowers and buy that first bag of sand/salt.

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:


*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
